Mr. FFF thinks that he is a TOP food blogger.

Because he can make a (3 ingredient) smoothie that I told him to make.

Liiike, literally told him every single (again, only 3) ingredient to use. Juuuust left the ratios up to him because he is just a REALLY GOOD smoothie making person.

I always know what FLAVORS I want in on the smoothie action but, for some reason I always mess up the ratios.

This ends up with a lackluster-very-watery-not-creamy-frothy-YUMMY smoothie experience. You don’t even WANNA taste my first version on his much better vegan banana matcha smoothie.

But Mr. FFF? Whether it’s a mango avocado smoothie with watermelon, banana vanilla orange smoothie or even a banana split vegan smoothie BOWL, he NAILS IT.

And, in this particular case, he walked around the house sipping his carrot ginger smoothie PROCLAIMING how “REFRESHING and LIGHT and CALMING” it was.

Which, I mean, It is….but still. I think his smoothie skills might be going to his head.

Carrot Ginger Smoothie FAQ

What does ginger do in a smoothie?Adding ginger to a smoothie is a great idea because it has so many health benefits for your body! Raw ginger is very low in calories and incredibly high in vitamins and minerals. It boasts being high in phosphorus, iron, potassium, calcium, and zinc and it also provides a good amount of fiber for your digestive system. Ginger is also an immune system boosting food with illness fighting properties to keep you strong! Adding some to your carrot smoothie recipe will not disappoint in the health department, but will also add a fun and spicy, zingy flavor to your shake!

What is orange and carrot juice good for?If you’re looking to cleanse out your body, consider adding a smoothie like this one to your daily routine! Orange juice and carrot juice combined provide a wealth of vitamins and nutrients for your body to use to fight illness and keep its immune system strong! Orange juice contains a high amount of vitamin C and carrot juice has lots of vitamin A. They also provide a boost of energy and even have the ability to keep your skin healthy and glowing if consumed regularly!

Does this smoothie taste a lot like carrots?Since this smoothie does contain a good amount of carrots, you can certainly taste the carrot flavor. However, it’s really well balanced by the sweetness of the orange juice and spicy zing of the ginger. The ratio of flavors is on point and very well balanced so you won’t be bombarded by carrot flavor!
